This tasted like a really fine German lager, along the lines of Hacker Pshorre Munich or Wiehenstephaner’s original. Very crisp and clean and brewed with the German purity law. Slightly nutty in flavor. Good stuff if not quite as good as their wheat

12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s Chapel Hill Ar: Aroma is a bit off. Standard caramelly malt aromas but laced with an odd sourish vinegary/metallic note. Neither expected nor desirable. Ap:Good looking beer. Pours a clear amber with a frothy 1" head that leaves really nice lacing. T: Fairly sweet malty flavors of caramel and bread dough. Finish is mildly bittered but oddly metallic. P: Medium body, a bit sticky. Carbonation seems slightly above average. O: Strong presence of a couple of off-flavors. Along with the Bock, the weakest of the $1 TJ’s offerings that I’ve had.

The aroma was nutty and malty with a caramel aspect which was quite prominent. Vienna and Munich malts stood out and seemed a bit stronger than found in most Vienna Lagers. A very light haze was in the amber beer with a fleeting head. The flavor was malty and nutty with a Munich/Vienna malt toasty character. The flavor was just edging toward sweet, but was not cloying. The body was medium and the carbonation level was just below moderate. An ok Vienna, but with just a bit too much malt character. 12 ounce bottle (92 cents).

Clear light amber, small head. Malty aroma, caramel with a hint of chocolate. Malty and smooth, nutty, vanilla, caramel. Not too shabby.

(12 ounce bottle - pint glass) Pours a copper amber color with little head. Has no head retention and little lacing. Aroma is a caramel toffee malt. Tastes of bread malt and is a little hoppy also has notes of toffee. Light to medium body and above average carbonation.

Decent beer for the price. Medium clear amber color. Small off white head. A decent balance of mold hops and malts. The malts over power the hops.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2007
I wasn’t expecting a whole lot but I was very pleasantly surprised--this is a startlingly good beer for the money. From a 12-oz. bottle, this pours a crystal clear orangey-amber with minimal head. No lacing. Decent grainy malt presence in the aroma. Initial taste is nutty caramel with a hint of vanilla, followed quickly by a nice finish of hops. Surprisingly well-balanced and the finish is very clean.

12 oz. Smells a little bit like vanilla coke (vanilla, carmel, cola), which I wasn’t exactly expecting. Mouthfeel is moderately chewy and finishes with a nicely crisp note. All in all, one of the more compelling offerings in the TJ’s own brand arsenal.
